DecemBEER is here (early!)

November 15, 2015

DecemBEERWe just couldn't wait to get into DecemBEER this year, so we're kicking things off early with two small-batch beer releases this week. What is DecemBEER? It's our favourite time of the year! Each Friday in the lead up to Christmas, we'll be featuring 1-2 new small-batch beer releases, available exclusively at our brewery retail store and on tap at select locations. Each of these small-batch beer releases will be available in limited quantities while supplies last.

This year we’re excited to get the series started with two very special small-batch beers from the women behind the Queen of Craft Women’s Beer Series. This year's all-women brew team developed a unique recipe for a hoppy hibiscus spruce ale called "Needlepoint" which debuts this Friday. After winning a gold medal at the Ontario Brewing Awards we’re also excited to bring out a new batch of 2015: A Spice Odyssey - Chai Latte Stout that was developed and released as part of last years Queen of Craft beer. In a few weeks 2015: A Spice Odyssey will also be available at select LCBO locations across Ontario. Both of these beer releases will support the Guelph-Wellington Women In Crisis with $1 from each bottle going to support the vital work this organization does in our city to support women.

As DecemBEER continues we’ve got some exciting releases planned. Next weekend, we’re looking forward to letting the Kentucky Cow loose - our popular Chocolate Milk Stout aged for 4 months in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. Then we’ve got Train Hoppin’ an American style IPA that was voted a fan favourite at our THIRTY: Anniversary Cask Fest. Then, to cap off DecemBEER 2015, we’ve got the return of our legendary Yuletide Barley Wine with a fresh 2015 vintage alongside an extremely limited re-release of cellar aged 2014 vintage Yuletide Barley Wine.
